Top Frederick Gaudreau News

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Back at it

    Gaudreau (upper body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against Washington, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Gaudreau is expected to return to a bottom-six role following his two-game absence. He's picked up three goals and 10 points through 34 contests this season.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Remains unavailable

    Gaudreau (upper body) isn't expected to play Sunday versus the Hurricanes, per Joe Smith of The Athletic.

    Gaudreau will miss his second straight contest. It's unclear at this time if he will be available to return Tuesday versus Washington. Gaudreau has 10 points, 57 shots on goal and 27 blocked shots in 34 outings this season. Jake Lucchini will replace Connor Dewar, who sustained a lower-body injury in Friday's 6-4 win over Florida, in Sunday's lineup.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Out Friday

    Gaudreau (upper body) will not play Friday against Florida, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    As expected, Gaudreau will be absent after suffering an injury Thursday against the Lightning. The 30-year-old has just one point over his last nine games and 10 through 34 appearances this season. Minnesota's next game is Sunday in Carolina.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Suffers upper-body injury

    Gaudreau is doubtful for Friday's game in Florida after suffering an upper-body injury in Tampa Bay on Thursday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Gaudreau suffered the injury on his first shift of the third period and did not return. Patrick Maroon replaced him on the third line for the remainder of the game and should line up alongside Ryan Hartman and Marcus Foligno on Friday. Adam Raska is likely to enter the lineup and see fourth line minutes. Gaudreau has three goals, seven assists and 57 shots on goal in 34 games this season.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Two-point effort in loss

    Gaudreau scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Jets.

    His one-timer from the faceoff circle gave the Wild a 2-1 lead early in the third period, but it didn't hold up. It was Gaudreau's first multi-point performance of the season. His spot on the third line limits his fantasy ceiling, but the veteran center is on a bit of a heater with two goals and six points over the last eight games. Even though he only skates on the second unit, half of that production has come with the man advantage.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Lights lamp against Vancouver

    Gaudreau scored his second goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 shootout win over the Canucks.

    The veteran center opened the scoring late in the first period by redirecting a slick feed from Marcus Foligno past Casey DeSmith. Gaudreau didn't collect his first point of the season until late November, but he's since found a bit of a groove with two goals and four points in the last nine games while holding down a spot on Minnesota's second power-play unit.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Tallies first of the season

    Gaudreau scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Blues.

    Gaudreau put the Wild ahead 2-1 late in the first period, beating Jordan Binnington with a wrist shot through traffic. It's the first point in 10 games this season for Gaudreau, who missed 10 games with an upper-body injury earlier in the campaign. The 30-year-old center tallied 19 goals and 38 points in 82 games last year. Gaudreau should primarily skate in a bottom-six role with the Wild while also seeing time on the second power-play unit.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Good to go

    Gaudreau (upper body) will be activated from long-term injured reserve ahead of his return to the lineup Sunday against Toronto, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Gaudreau is good to go after sitting out the past 10 games. He hasn't earned a point in six appearances this season. Gaudreau, who could occupy a middle-six role in Sunday's contest, has been credited with nine shots on goal, one blocked shot and three hits this campaign.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Moves to LTIR

    Gaudreau (upper body) was placed on long-term injured reserve Monday.

    Gaudreau, who is retroactive to Oct. 24, will be eligible to play Sunday against Toronto. According to Michael Russo of The Athletic, putting Gaudreau on LTIR allows the Wild to bring a 23rd player for the team's trip to Sweden for the Global Series. It also provides Minnesota with some flexibility in case Jesper Wallstedt has to play due to an injury or illness to Marc-Andre Fleury or Filip Gustavsson.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Back on ice

    Gaudreau (upper body) skated Sunday and could return Nov. 19 against Toronto, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.

    Gaudreau has missed eight straight games after being held without a point in his first six appearances. He'll travel with the Wild to Sweden and expects to return Nov. 19 barring any setbacks.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Remains out Thursday

    Gaudreau (upper body) won't play Thursday versus the Rangers, per the NHL media site.

    Gaudreau hasn't played since Oct. 26 because of the injury. He has no points, a minus-2 rating and nine shots in six contests this season. When Gaudreau is ready to return, he will likely serve in a middle-six capacity and occupy a spot on the second power-play unit.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Yet to start skating

    Gaudreau (upper body) still isn't skating, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports, indicating the forward will remain out of the lineup against New Jersey on Thursday.

    Gaudreau shouldn't be expected to suit up versus the Devils and probably is a long shot to play in Saturday's clash with the Rangers as well. Prior to his three-game absence, the veteran center was mired in a six-game pointless streak during which he registered just nine shots.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Not on trip

    Gaudreau is dealing with an upper-body injury and did not travel with the Wild to Philadelphia for the start of the team's three-game road trip.

    Gaudreau has yet to record a point in six contests this season. He saw 15:23 of ice time in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Oilers, so it's unclear when he got hurt. Jujhar Khaira was called up from AHL Iowa and will likely replace Gaudreau in the lineup during the road trip.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Practicing on opening day of camp

    Gaudreau, who underwent abdominal surgery over the summer, practiced with the Wild on Thursday, per Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

    Gaudreau skated alongside Kirill Kaprizov and Mats Zuccarello as part of Minnesota's Group A skate. Gaudreau isn't likely to start the regular season as part of that unit, but he'd certainly be worth keeping a close eye on if he did. The 30-year-old forward had 19 goals and 38 points in 82 outings in 2022-23.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Set to undergo surgery

    Gaudreau will undergo surgery on an abdominal injury he dealt with for the last four months of the season, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    At this point it isn't clear if Gaudreau will be ready for training camp in September. He picked up 19 goals and 38 points through 82 regular-season contests before adding three goals through six playoff appearances this season.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Scores goal in loss to Dallas

    Gaudreau provided a goal in Minnesota's 4-1 loss to Dallas in Game 6 on Friday.

    Gaudreau found the back of the net midway through the third period, but that merely reduced Dallas' lead to 3-1. Minnesota has been eliminated from the playoffs, in large part because the Wild managed just three goals over the final three contests of the first-round series, though Gaudreau did his part, supplying two of the tallies in that span. He finished with three goals and three points in six postseason games overall this year. That's pretty solid considering Gaudreau finished the regular season with 19 markers and 38 points in 82 outings.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Lights lamp in loss

    Gaudreau scored a goal on two shots, added two PIM, logged four hits and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Stars in Game 2.

    Gaudreau has scored seven goals over his last 12 outings. The 29-year-old center continues to play in a middle-six role, taking on a bit more responsibility with Joel Eriksson Ek (lower body) unavailable. Gaudreau had 38 points in 82 regular-season contests.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Inks long-term deal

    Gaudreau signed a five-year, $10.5 million contract with the Wild on Thursday.

    It's nice term for Gaudreau, who entered Thursday with 36 points in 81 contests. The 29-year-old center can play all around the lineup but typically holds down a middle-six role with some power-play time, and he's now under contract at a reasonable price.

  • Wild's Frederick Gaudreau: Provides two goals in loss

    Gaudreau supplied two goals in a 4-3 overtime loss to Nashville on Thursday.

    Gaudreau scored in each of the first and second periods, tying the game at 1-1 and then 2-2 with his markers. He found the back of the net six times over his final 10 outings of the 2022-23 campaign. Thanks in part to that strong finish, Gaudreau recorded 19 goals in 82 contests this season, which surpassed his previous career high of 14, set in 2021-22. The 29-year-old also contributed 19 assists, 138 shots, 42 hits and 52 blocks this year.
